The remnants of hurricane Ike bore down on Arkansas Saturday. It produced heavy rain and wind speeds up to 50 mph. Most of the state was under a tornado warning. Tori was home visiting and to attend her cousins baby shower. She took these photos.
John watching the storm roll in.
Tori captured this photo which appears to be a funnel cloud. It was spinning...very eerie. There was a bird that was trying to fly into the storm; it was so sad cause it kept getting knocked down several feet. It finally gave up and flew the other way. Cabot (the town we live in) did have a tornado touch down! No one was hurt. This picture is almost beautiful in a weird, I. like. storms. sort of way.
and I took this photo...the rain & winds had just begun. Ike came through pretty fast. We are happy he didn't dump as much rain on as as Gustav did.
So I finished Twilight and New Moon. I'm about to crack open Eclipse. I'm so addicted to this series that I haven't been crocheting and I've done little sewing.
I did manage to put the book down and make John this Therapy Wrap for his neck. I did it in Arkansas Razorback material....GO HOGS!!! (Reeses just had to be in the photo...he is saying, hey, look at me...)
I added the fragrance oil "butt naked" which smells soooo good. I used this scent in my homemade soaps this summer. The description for this scent is..... "Tantalizing base notes medley of granny smith apples and honeydew melon, middle notes of strawberries and pears, with hints of spice."
Every time he pops it in the microwave to heat it up, makes the entire house smell so good! Mmmmm.
Time to get back to Edward & Bella.
